Water Baptisms

Baptism is a public declaration of faith, a burial of your old life (before you met Christ) and a resurrection to your new life with Christ, and a critical step of obedience. We are excited about the 81 people who took this step and will continue seeing more make that decision.

If you are interested in being water baptized, attend Class 1 of Next Steps, or contact Judy (judy@thecause.cc or 714.255.0930 x110).

Attendance Stats

Each number reflects a person – child, youth or adult – and each person is on a journey. Our heart is to help people connect to God and grow closer to Him as they journey with us.

Small Group Stats

At The Cause, we don’t just want to attend church – we want to share life together. As you develop genuine friendships with other believers, you experience growth and victory in your relationship with Jesus. Not only are you ministered to and cared for on a personal basis, but God uses your life experiences, personal testimony, and gifts and abilities to love and minister to others.
